Friendly Connections, Inc.

Join us in being a buddy and companion for an adult with a developmental disability. Friendly connections tries hard to make sure we pair our clients with loving, compassionate individuals who will help them get out into the community and embrace a new way of life. The pandemic impacted all of us, individuals with disabilities were hit even harder. They rely on day programs and school in order to socialize and as part of their routine. The pandemic has put an end to all that over the last year. Help us to help them, fill that void and give them a better quality of life.
